THIS IS US

October 2018, siblings Chris and Tracy along with Tracy's husband Randy decided to follow their dreams and purchase Everts Resort together!  

Chris Winchester is an outdoorsman through and through. He spends countless hours pursuing all of the critters this river has to offer. Although he loves to hunt and fish his true passion is sharing his knowledge and skills with others, especially children. Dont be afraid to ask Chris for some advice, he will point you in the right direction. 

Randy and Tracy have been married for 36 years raising four amazing kids together. The biggest joy in their lives at this point is their 7 grandchildren. Randy is Evert's all around fix it and build it man. Projects big and small, he can do them all.  Tracy recently quit her 9-5 to Manage the resort full time.  She wears many hats and can juggle like a pro.  And she brags about having the best view from her office of anyone.

 

It is pretty common to see the entire family hanging out, heading out on the boat, fishing the shoreline, or enjoying a campfire with smores.

EVERTS HISTORY

The resort became known as Everts Resort in 1940, Started by Evelyn and Rolland Evert, who were avid outdoorsmen. In October of 2018 we were fortunate enough to get the opportunity to purchase the resort, a lifelong dream for us.

 

Growing up in a family of 9 children, Tracy and Chris spent much of our childhoods on the water. Their father, Frederick (Bud), loved everything hunting and fishing and that love was definitely handed down to them. They continue to make improvements to the property as well as the cabins.

 

During a recent remodel of Cabin 3 a "Notice To Guests" was found in the walls during demolition. This notice was written by the original owner Evelyn in her handwriting. It is treasure such as this, that tell the history of this amazing place on the shores of the Mississippi and what makes it so very special to us as well as the guest that have been coming here for years.
